On Tuesday 14 June, UNESCO will welcome Monique Coleman, young actress and singer, and United Nations Youth Champion, in Paris. She has embarked on a world tour to promote youth civic engagement, within the framework of the United Nations International Year of Youth (August 2010 - August 2011).

This Year’s theme “Dialogue and Mutual Understanding” is in direct line with current youth concerns, and the values promoted by UNESCO.

On the occasion of her visit, Monique Coleman will participate, among other things, in a meeting on UNESCO’s actions towards youth.

A partnership could be launched between the projects carried out by Monique Coleman and the UNESCO 7th Youth Forum that will take place at the Organization’s Headquarters from 17 to 20 October 2011.
